Museum Exhibit To Feature CdA Tribe

Residents of North Idaho will have the opportunity to learn more about other cultures through a new exhibit at the Human Rights Education Institute (HREI). The grand opening ceremony is slated for 6:30 p.m. Friday at HREI. Entitled “Many Cultures, One World”, the exhibit explores the culture and history of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe in “Schitsu’umsh Country” and features historic artifacts from the Tribe, including saddles, regalia, beadwork, and various other items. Visitors will learn about the history and traditions of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe and also gain a current perspective on the Tribe’s impact and participation in the region today. HREI and the Tribe’s Culture and Language Departments plan to partner on several workshops throughout the year to supplement the exhibit, including a beading and weaving workshop, a “Tipi How-To”, and a stickgame demonstration/spokesman Heather Leen, Coeur d'Alene Indian Tribe. More here.

Question: How much do you know of the Coeur d'Alene Indian Tribe culture?
